"Run for your life!"
My true love screamed
She covered her body and I took to the street
For he had returned
Such cunning speed
Indeed, he'd found me

And he broke my bones in half
He covered my face with a burlap sack
And tied my remains to the wooden rack
Down by the cornfield

And I starved through the spring and the summer rain
Just to freeze to death when the winter came
And in the arms of the evergreens
I planned my revenge

"Will you come back?"
I called to her
Smouldering fear of a young love spurned
With the whippoorwill's call as my witness
I will wait here

The old man's rifle barrel glowed
He'd mistaken me for a frightened doe
The buckshot spray felt cruel and cold
As frozen diamonds

And he cried as I lay with my head in his hands
As I looked in his eyes I forgave that man
And as my vision blurred
I let out my final breath

My God, you're ravishing tonight
And do you believe in ghosts,
To be out wandering alone?
I would love it if you'd take my hand and dance with me

Don't you run
Expect me at your doorstep when the town bell tolls one
Don't you run
